Only for completionists (0%). A bit f a disappointment, really. At the close of the stylish booklet accompanying the CD, Martin Orford openly admits that "The Old Road" is not a progressive rock album, being instead 'unashamedly retro'. In a world where blatant rip-offs are often touted as wildly innovative, such an admission is refreshingly honest, to say the least.

So Martin Orford throws in the towel, and only in a few years everybody will realize what the music scene has lost with his departure. As if he wants to prove that to all, he releases a final album under his name. For that purpose he gathered several well known musicians who make this an almost all-star-project: Nick D’Virgilio of Spock’s Beard, Gary Chandler of Jadis, Steve Thorne and John Wetton of Asia and King Crimson fame. But the highlight of The Old Road is the title track. With over eight minutes, it still is over much too soon. The melange of bombast, melancholy, but also Rock deserves nothing less but the attrtibute ‘brilliant. Has Orford composed his finest song at the very end of his career?

Artist: Martin Orford. Heyo! SONGLYRICS just got interactive. Taking the old road To rediscover things we'd taken for granted Losing the heavy load Try to make the most of every day We're taking the old road Back to where the seeds of wisdom were planted Leaving the race forever And reject the modern way. God the power to talk for hours To friends you've never seen Since you started to live your life In a made-up world, through a cold flat screen
1. 1. Endgame Lyrics. Into the endgame, bound for surrender We make no sound Taking the old road, leaving the download To claim our ground And no-one stopped and cried, on the day the music died Their faces turned aside when they came to close us down. Lost in the sunset, bathed in vermillion We live for the day You in my life were one in million, and I hope you'll stay But the ray of hope is gone, that we need to carry on We're back where we came from, in a universe alone.
